The beauty of Mexico's Sea of Cortez is brought to life as we explore the unique life of a small fishing village on El Pardito Island. Pepe Cuevas is a second generation fishermen who lives on the island with his son and daughter. Various generations describe their lives growing up on this remote island. A younger generation has left the island to form a popular ranchera band. Several of their lively songs serve as a backdrop to the beautiful images of the fishermen and their life on the sea. Pepe's funny and light-hearted nature warms the soul as he describes a life he loves, but his mood changes when he talks seriously about the problems of over fishing and a way of life that may be disappearing.
